About ILIANA BERKOWITZ, OWNER & head baker
A Bay Area native, Iliana spent years on both coasts honing her craft in bakeries and restaurant kitchens before deciding in 2016 to build her own bread business--one that would reflect her unique palate, perspective, and passion. After developing an initial fan base through pop-ups and a weekly bread subscription program, known as “Bread Club,” Iliana took the leap to serving wholesale accounts and farmers’ markets. As AKB continues to reach new heights, Iliana's original mission remains the same: Deliver wholesome breads of unparalleled taste, texture, and substance--and a few bread puns every now and then for good measure.
